Lisbon-based visual artist Bordalo II (1987) works classical themes which he renders with a modern and bold approach, taking up the technique of collage as a recurrent element in his canvasses while also representing the real world by using what others view as waste in the construction of three-dimensional sculptural pieces. With a background in graffiti, he often makes use of its techniques and tools, especially in his outdoor productions. He is known for his use of large-scale compositions and installations, creating, recreating, assembling and developing ideas with end-of-life materials in a bid to relate them to the concepts of sustainability, and ecological and social awareness.
